When having two powers makes you a Super and having none makes you a Normal, having only one makes you a sad half-superpowered freak.

It makes you a One.

Sixteen-year-old Merrin Grey would love to be able to fly – too bad all she can do is hover.

If she could just land an internship at the Biotech Hub, she might finally figure out how to fix herself. She busts her butt in AP Chem and salivates over the Hub’s research on the manifestation of superpowers, all in hopes of boosting her chances.

Then she meets Elias VanDyne, another One, and all her carefully crafted plans fly out the window. Literally. When the two of them touch, their Ones combine to make them fly, and when they’re not soaring over the Nebraska cornfields, they’re busy falling for each other.

Merrin's mad chemistry skills land her a spot on the Hub's internship short list, but as she gets closer to the life she always wanted, she discovers that the Hub’s purpose is more sinister than it has always seemed. Now it’s up to her to decide if it's more important to fly solo, or to save everything - and everyone - she loves.

I am a geek when it comes to superheroes. I love the X-Men and anything that has to deal with power. I was extremely sad when Heroes was cancelled. So while I reading this book, I felt all giddy and geeky. I mean who wouldn’t want to have powers?

What is worst than starting a new school? Having the feel like you don’t belong - being stuck in the middle with no side to choose… Having no status to claim. This is the story of Merrin Grey.

“Mer” feels like an outcast. She is not a “normal” yet not a super. Her entire life she has dreamed of flying high above the sky. See, she is a One – she have not fully enabled to develop her potential at being powerful. She is stuck in feeling below the Supers and being hated by the Normals.

As a new student she meets Elias VanDyne and he is the answer to her dreams of flying.

I love this book; it reminds me so much of the X-Men. I love the chemistry of Mer and Elias. I love their first moment they shared. I love how LeighAnn describes it. It is so intimate that I felt like I was intruding this private moment. I also love how I felt while reading I can actually picture the scenes. It felt like I was watching a movie. This book reveals many secrets. I love the several twists it contains. It was a great read!


  1. Ooh if it's anything like the X Men I think I will love it! Thanks for reviewing this book, I'll check it out.

  2. Oh wow this sounds really good and the book cover is just absolutely beautiful. Thanks for reviewing the book!
